If you have an old but working laptop, there is software you can use to turn it into a sort of "virtual monitor" written over a network connection...

I've seen a lot of this in the past. I once wanted to do the same thing. Basically there is good news and bad news. good: It can be done! it is entirely possible to remove the screen, wire a special cable and stuff and run it. bad: It requires a controller board. These are available for most makes and models, but pricing doesn't work out. Last time I checked, I could buy an lcd monitor for the cost of the controller board.
